A Growing Evil

It is only too true, and we sadly need one of the old prophets to break in upon the Household to cry aloud and spare not — to warn one and all of our failings, and to point out, as one of the prophets did to Israel of old, that in the day of their fast they sought and found pleasures where their God was not, and, furthermore, did things which grieved their brethren.

We have no visible Master with us; we have no Isaiah or Jeremiah, no Peter, James, John, or Paul. We accept their Scriptures as the basis of our Faith and practice, and accept them as authoritative. Let us, therefore, heed their counsel:

“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up the voice like a trumpet, and show My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins” (Isa. lviii. 1).

F. G. J.
